July Adopt a Dolphin Update

With summer being in full swing in the Moray Firth it’s normal at this time of year to have daily sightings of lots of local dolphins including the six individual dolphins that you can adopt with WDC. I can have good days and bad days but yesterday was very much a good day as I managed to catch up with Mischief, Moonlight, Rainbow (whom I have seen recently around Chanonry Point) and – the sometimes elusive, Spirit, who was cruising happily around the Cromarty Firth with her youngster, both looking in great condition. Spirit, now a granny, usually passes by Chanonry Point a few times a month but this month so far I have only spotted her once so having the opportunity courtesy of Ecoventures at Cromarty – I was able to spend yesterday afternoon out at sea where some dolphins, like Spirit, remained at a distance while others were very inquisitive and came over to check out the boat.
